After Juniper, we have another research company exploring the prospects of the mobile video calling services. It’s In-Stat which has found that this market’s total revenues will exceed $1 billion by 2015.
Obviously, they point out that video calls are nothing new, but they returned to the spotlight following Apple’s introduction of the iPhone 4 and FaceTime.
Some of the highlights from the report include:
- The number of mobile video calling users will grow at a 115% CAGR through 2015.
- Asia/Pacific will consume 53% of the mobile video calling minutes used by 2015.
- Mobile video calling participants of note include Apple, Fring, OoVoo, Qik and Skype.
- In 2015, mobile video calling will result in over 9 exabytes in data traffic in North America.
As usual, more information is available for those who grab In-Stat’s full report titled “Mobile Video Calling: Market Analysis and Technology Adoption Estimates.” Additional details on that one are available from the company’s website.
